Big wooden spools

When I was younger we used to play on these big wooden spools that cable comes on.  And I've always loved and wanted one for some reason.  I just know they would make a unique coffee table, or an extra seat with a cushiony cushion on it, or a table for plants or a game table.. or just about anything you can dream of.  So I text my husband today and told him that one of the guys at work had one on the forklift headed to the trash bin and I rescued it...

He said  " Oh no you didnt"
I said  " Oh yes I did" 

Stay tuned for what it becomes.. I have several ideas floating around in my head ... or rather fighting for some space in my head with all the other crap up there.  Any ideas?  I'd love to hear them, leave me a comment. 


  1. How about cutting it down and padding it and covering it and making a big ottoman?

  2. Oh what fun we had playing on those spools as children! I want one:)) I think it would make a great table to use on your patio or deck! You could even figure out a way to use it as an umbrella stand?

  3. Debbie... how funny...I love it. What's even funnier is I saw one the other day they were using and thought... I need one of those!! Can't wait to see what becomes of your spool! Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comment on my crate table!
